The construction industry keeps Britain moving, with building materials, merchants and logistics in great demand across the country. A smooth logistics plan means projects operate safely and efficiently, and most importantly, on time and on budget.
Construction is a very diverse industry that includes activities ranging from mining, quarrying and forestry to the construction of infrastructure and buildings, the manufacture and supply of products, as well as maintenance, operation, and disposal.
The output in the UK is more than £110 billion per annum and contributes 7% of GDP (ref. Government Construction Strategy). Approximately a quarter of construction output in the public sector and three-quarters are in the private sectors.
Approximately 60% of the output is a new build, whilst 40% is refurbishment and maintenance.
Pressure to deliver cost-effective construction projects on time and to budget has never been higher – made more difficult by increasing complexity. Factors such as the introduction of modular construction, site access restrictions or the sheer number of disparate suppliers can hinder your progress and put you over budget. Managing all this complexity whilst retaining flexibility is the key to completing the project safely and efficiently.
